Random Thoughts


- I wasn't trying to give AB props earlier. The Raiders offensive line is horrendous.


- The most competitive college football title race is in the Big East - West Virginia, Louisville, Rutgers and Pitt.


- Archie's look at the boys in the ESPN commercial is still killer. Good stuff.


- Expect the NFL to have more of a say in players' health care and game-to-game availability. It may not come today or next week. But its coming. Especially if the medical community keeps banging the concussion drum.


- Sammy Knight is my all time favorite Saint. And he's still knockin' heads.


- The local paper here ran a national story that spoke of the hurdles for the Gators to get in the national championship picture - Spurrier's Gamecocks and the SEC title game. Not one mention of Florida State.

- University of Hawaii has accepted an invitation to the Hawaii Bowl. No surprise there. They throw 400+ a game and are on track for a 60 passing touchdown season. Wonder who their opponent will be. Wonder if they'll be the apple or the pig....


- Wouldn't it be cool if the Dolphins had to take care of the Colts in the last game of the season.

Hawaii is a very good team... they actually have something that resembles a defense for the first time in years. I know they're from Hawaii and want to put on a show for the home crowd but if they want more recognition/respect from the rest of the league, they should consider going to a different bowl game down the road. I would love to see their offense play against another SEC opponent.

i'm not sure what has happened to florida state, but they have dropped off significantly in a decade.... they used to be the most feared team in the land, and today they aren't anywhere near that..... miami may be the next team to have that exact same drop off... and i really hope so b/c i absolutely abhor miami.... coker looks like the guy from the goonies....

The slide started when other teams came knockin' for our coaches. There was a 10 to 15 year period of a great cohesive staff.

I miss the years of total hurricane dominance but hey.....everything changes. I have noticed the shifting of power and its kind of a welcome sight even though I wish the anes weren't so affected by it.

Kanes are punks. That is the downfall. 5 years in a row they have signed Punks

i hate the fact that michael irvin is such a homer and is all about the "u".... and the cowboys.... he's constantly making excuses for TO dropping passes.... TO has cost the 'boys 2 games this year and if wasn't such a playmaker, i'm sure parcells would have cut him a long time ago.... bottom line, one of those two (TO and parcells) isn't going to be back in big d next season.... wanna take bets on who stays and who goes? i'm betting TO will be gone before the draft.... unless parcells retires, but i think if they make the playoffs, he ain't givin' it up quite yet

Am I in bizarro world or did he just use competitive college football and the big east in the same sentence...
LOL but true.
- TV network exec's don't watch football pregame shows or THEY'd GET A CLUE!!!

- Just when you'd given up on the Saints front office they connect on a few of their hail Mary's (Colston, Payton, Brees, Fujita)
